UPDATE: 5/6/18, 7:22 a.m. EDT. In a torrential downpour, Justify got out to an early lead and never looked back in winning the Kentucky Derby on Saturday. In doing so, he also broke the so-called Curse of Apollo, becoming the first horse since 1882 to win the Derby despite not having raced as a 2-year-old. Audible finished third.

The days leading up to the Kentucky Derby are always busy ones at Frost Brown Todd, the largest law firm in Louisville.

Clients coming in from out of town have to be entertained and the firm’s lawyers are also in demand at other events held by local clients ahead of the big race at Churchill Downs. A crowd of more than 150,000 will gather Saturday at the iconic thoroughbred racetrack for the first leg of the annual American Triple Crown.

“It really is a two-week-long festival,” said Geoffrey White, partner-in-charge of Frost Brown Todd’s roughly 150-lawyer Louisville office, about the period leading up to Derby. “There’s time away from client work, but also quality time spent with those clients.”
